  • Wiscarson Law, A Professional Corporation

    http://www.WiscarsonLaw.com
    Our philosophy is simple – “The child is the client.” We remain focused on the child’s needs and legal entitlements. Our background and experience in both education law and special needs within our own families helps parents solve their child’s education issues. Education law is a complex and constantly evolving myriad of federal, regional and state rules, regulations and cases. As a parent, it is difficult to understand this ever-changing area of law and figure out how to apply it to your child’s unique situation. We can help you by working with you and your School District or Education Service District in a variety of ways. Wiscarson Law helps hundreds of families every year. In most situations, Wiscarson Law improves education for families and their children simply by working with school and district personnel. A small number of cases each year lead to some kind of formal legal process, such as state complaints, state due process filings and Office for Civil Rights Complaints. Of those cases that go to a formal legal process, 95.16% filed by Wiscarson Law are resolved favorably through negotiated settlements, rather than a formal decision-making process.
